01.03.23 - Stratospheric Ozone Forecasts are Realistic When Using the Chemical Mechanism in the GEOS-CF System
The GEOS Composition Forecast (GEOS-CF) system, running at the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), provides global near-real-time 5-day forecasts of atmospheric composition. Among others, a GEOS-CF forecast was verified to be in good agreement with NASA’s daily observation-based Ozone Watch analysis of total column ozone that decreases over the 5-day forecast.

12.23.22 - The World's Largest Turbulence Simulation Unmasks the Flow of Energy in Astrophysical Plasmas
Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory researchers and collaborators have uncovered a previously hidden heating process that helps explain how the atmosphere that surrounds the Sun called the “solar corona” can be vastly hotter than the solar surface that emits it. The discovery leveraged computational resources from NASA High-End Computing’s NASA Advanced Supercomputing facility, the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, and the National Science Foundation-sponsored Computational and Information Systems Laboratory.

12.20.22 - The Gift that Keeps on Giving: NAS Division Research in 2022
Launch pad safety. Mars landings. Cleaner, quieter aircraft. These and more selected projects led by NAS Division experts over the past year will benefit agency missions and projects for years to come! All were presented during SC22, the International Conference for High-Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis, where NASA returned in person this year to showcase the science and engineering made possible by the agency’s supercomputers.
